College of Science, Engineering and Mathematics
Department of Physics
Minimum Requirements for Degree: 30 credits
The general science program
offers M.S. degrees in the biological sciences, chemistry,
the geosciences and physics. The M.S. degree may be described as a breadth
degree, rather than a depth degree, so a candidate normally pursues a
course of study in one of these disciplines and is cooperating with at
least one other discipline.
- Complete the following admissions
a. Complete a baccalaureate degree with a 3.0 GPA.
- At least
21 credits must be earned in science and mathematics.
At least 12 credits must be earned in the major discipline
selected. A thesis (maximum of 3 or project (no credit)
must be completed in the major discipline. It is not
intended that the individual courses comprising the program
merely satisfy the credit requirements; each course should
contribute to the specific aim of the candidate, and
the thesis or project should reflect this aim.
